Hope it peters out and everyone is safe.

I know I spend too much time on here when I read Issac as iacas!!! :P  Thus the reason for the thread.

I agree, hope it turns out to be a tropical storm and nothing more.  I have family all up and down the Gulf side.

Folks in the SW Florida area... Get your golf in now!  You could be in for a long couple of days...

Me too. I am going to have to keep the ball low Sunday afternoon!

I guess that means ComberBeach is a bit lysdexic???

I don't know why, but I always felt a little extra bad that "my" hurricane [Andrew] was so bad for the people of Florida.

OMG mine too!

I used to tell people my bday's easy to remember - it's what you dial in an emergency. No such memory jogs needed now.

One of (few) the benefits of having the name "Jamieson": no one is ever going to name a hurrican after you. :-D

We have been getting wind and rain from Isaac (that's the proper spelling by the way ) since Thursday evening.  The storm is very large and the strongest portion is the eastern half (cyclonic storms are always strongest east of the center).  Right now it's centered almost due south of us, over western Haiti.  We are still supposed to get more heavy rain and gale force winds today here in the central Bahamas as the storm moves to the northwest taking dead aim at the Florida Keys.  It starts to moderate for us around noon tomorrow (Sunday).  For the last day and half we've had the biggest waves we've yet seen breaking on the beach in front of the house.

No rain yet since sunrise today, but high humidity and clouds all around us so it's still coming.  I've got the storm flag up

    • If your hands are high up at both address & impact, should your iron address position be toe up or flush with the ground?  
    • I'm confused by this. How would they know the ball is embedded if it's lost? Or are they just claiming that since it was lost it must have been embedded? Isn't there a rule regarding casual water where if its known or virtually certain your ball is in the casual water you would get free relief even if you cant find your ball? Would the same thing apply to an embedded ball?   Good luck proving this one. I believe there has to be spoken/acknowledged intent by both players in order to make it backstopping. Do you actually see instances where players speak out loud that they are doing it to help out another player?
    • I see this often in casual golf.  Frequently if playing a new course with someone who "Knows" the course they inevitably tell you how to play each hole as if they are your caddie.
    • Played a strange 85-shots round at my home course yesterday. 1/13 fairways and 4/18 greens (12/18nGIR) was actually flattering with the long game I displayed. An absolute horrorshow of ballstriking. Thinned it, sliced it, shanked it, pulled it and duffed it short, left and right.  Hull 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Out 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 In Totalt   Par 5 3 4 3 4 4 4 3 5 35 5 3 4 4 5 3 4 4 5 37 72   Truls Ljådal Utslagssted:     --              Gul              Hvit              Rød           5 3 5 4 4 4 5 4 5 39 8 5 4 4 5 3 5 6 6 46 85                                               Fairway RIGHT   LEFT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT   HIT 1/6 LEFT   RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT 0/7 1/13   GIR Y Y N N Y N N N Y 4/9 N N N N N N N N N 0/9 4/18   Putts 2 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 14 2 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 13 27     Upside: From 50 yards and in was excellent and I made 9 up'n'downs from 50 yards and in and no 3-putts. I haven't hit a single 3-putt on my homecourse in the last 5 rounds. My long game can't possibly get any worse and I still shot 85 and 36 stableford points. 
    • This is one of those that depend on the situation.  If you do have a cart path right next to the hazard and your two club lengths drop comes into there, you are entitled to free relief from the path (ball or stance).  In theory you should mark the spot, then take relief from that spot as GUR relief, but many people choose to do it all at once
